Loosely inspired by Sanada Maru (which had a sweet unexpectedly-shippy moment with Ieyasu and Mitsuhide) and Hyouge Mono (where Ieyasu is nice to him after the banquet disaster and wants to help him out at Yamazaki but it's too late). Kind of turned into its own thing.
(Yeah, I know the whole “Nobunaga beat Mitsuhide” thing is mostly Edo era fanfiction + Frois but hey. It’s fanfic :D)

Continuing the series of "giving baritones a closure". This time it's Renato's turn. The setting is upgraded to early 20th century as it was in the 2012 Met staging because those costumes? Hella sexy. (Those singers? Also hella sexy.)
The immediate aftermath of the fateful ball and how Renato and Amelia deal with it. Renato's POV.
This was mostly inspired by the McVicar staging of Il trovatore at the Met (I have seen both the 2011 and 2015 Live in HD broadcasts). I only changed the "staging" of the ending because onstage murder > offstage execution and most productions do it onstage nowadays. Ferrando is the POV because there's more to him than just some guy who provides exposition. Di Luna would be better off with a loyal, nice bass than a foolish soprano who wants the tenor, but alas, it is not to be. If only everyone in this opera chilled out for like five seconds…
Ferrando looks like Štefan Kocán (he's amazing in this role) and Conte di Luna is, obviously, the late and wonderful Dmitri Hvorostovsky. I still miss him.
Also, I'm very biased when it comes to di Luna. He's the one who made me fall in love with opera in the first place.
What if Don Carlo di Vargas had won that final showdown with Alvaro?
I ship these two like crazy. Even by tenor/baritone standards, they are hella gay for each other. So this fic goes with the idea that they fell in love, and Carlo finding out the truth just made things even more complicated…
Partically inspired by the Munich production with Jonas Kaufmann and Ludovic Tézier, because they have amazing chemistry. Only loosely based on it, though – the characters are definitely "played" by them but the staging I imagine for this is a bit more traditional. Also, I always picture Leonora as Leontyne Price, even though she's a completely different generation than them.
Titinius reflecting on his feelings for Cassius before he dies.
A very old ficlet I had originally posted in the Unkindestslash community on Livejournal. I revised it a bit since my English was far from perfect back then.
